Separatists call for “another” strike on Tuesday
Srinagar, Apr 02: The separatists on Monday said that the protest shutdown against Shopian mayhem will continue tomorrow, April 03.
In a joint statement attributed to Syed Ali Shah Geeani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, the separatists said that “entire resistance and Hurriyat leadership will move towards Shopian on April 04 to express solidarity with the people and offer condolences to the bereaved families who lost their loved ones. The leadership will also address a public rally in Shopian.”
The statement also asked the people to “peacefully protest” Shopian killings at their local mosques after Zuhr Prayers.
The statement also targeted the government for their claims that the leadership was “free”.
“The claims made by the agencies of the ruling regime that leadership is now free to move stands completely exposed as within two days of it we were again put under arbitrary house arrest and Yasin Sahab detained in jail,” the statement said.
